Pioneering Spirit Exhibition
“Segerstrom Pioneering Spirit: An American Dream” is a unique exhibition that will be presented in Jewel Court June 14-July 30.
The interactive, archival displays will follow the family journey that began with a farming community and developed into an international shopping, dining and arts destination.

Long before South Coast Plaza became home to luxury boutiques and shops, the land — owned by the Segerstrom family — yielded row-upon-row of vibrant lima beans. At one time, 3,500 acres of the sturdy crop made the Segerstroms the country’s largest producer of lima beans.

Today only a small field remains, a tribute to the family’s rich agricultural legacy.
